Children will learn fascinating facts about this insect as the story unfolds. They will also discover the caterpillar’s amazing transformation into a butterfly.
Cutter eats, grows and sheds his outer skin a number of times. Although he lives a simple life on milkweed leaves, it often is filled with danger.
A few weeks later he feels different, and he senses that he needs a very long rest. This time, as he hangs upside-down on the stalk of a milkweed leaf, great changes occur to his body. Cutter transforms into Flutter, a beautiful Monarch butterfly.
He wastes no time in exploring a vast new world that he never knew existed. This book will let kids see how wondrous the natural world can be. It will also encourage them to follow Flutter’s example and discover what is beyond the world they are familiar with.
